ARE YOU THIRSTY?

THE BEER RUN FAQ’s

  1. What is included?

An awesome 5km run/walk route, with all the bells and whistles, an amazing finishers medal, access to the finish area festival, 5 beers/ciders/non-acholic drinks en-route.

  1. What is a Dehydration Station?

You will know all about these once you reach the finish-line! A Dehydration Station is our name for a beer stop. Your entry allows you one drink at each dehydration station. Each one will feature a different beer that you can try. The dehydration stations will appear every 1km along the route, so you will never have to go too long without a full beer in your hand.

  1. Is this thing timed?

It’s beer o’clock on our watch. But if you’re feeling competitive well then we recommend wearing a watch and timing yourself, if you have one of those fancy heart rate/step counter thingymabobs, who knows maybe you will get some loyalty/fitness points for your efforts.

  1. What is this team thing about?

Do you drink alone? Neither do we! More people=more fun, so enter, create a team and invite your friends to join you, You even get a discount! On race day you start together, drink together and even dress the same (optional unless you are identical twins, then your mom probably dressed you the same anyway)

  1. I like drinking but I don’t like running, can I still come?

This event was made for you! It is not a race (don’t let those skinny buggers in polly shorts tell you otherwise). We don’t care how you get to the beer stops it is all about spending time with your drinking buddies. Each beer stop is equipped with a chill area, entertainment and great views so you can take your time on route. Anyone can do 5km, especially with the motivation of a beer every kilometre.

  1. Can I bring my own beer from home?

No, unfortunately all extra beer must be purchased from one of our vendors . We do however recommend you buy a “road beer” from one of our vendors before heading out on the route.

  1. Can I bring my baby in a stroller/pram?

As long as the pram is capable of doing some off-road and you have a designated pram driver, you can bring your little racer along. Please be aware there could be a chance of rain and intoxicated people on route.

  1. What if it rains?

Do you stop drinking beer in the rain? Neither do we, the show will go on! Bring a rain jacket or umbrella and suck it up princess. Beer tastes the same in the rain

  1. What is The Beer Run®route like?

A mix of jeep track, paved roads and farm dirt roads, we promise there is nothing that will make you trip and spill your beer.

  1. Can I bring my dog if he/she likes beer?

Nobody likes dog hair in their beer! We suggest you leave Fido at home for this one.

  1. I’m not fit can I walk?

Yes of course, the route even has a shortcut to the finish (you will miss some beer stops and the free beer that goes with them if you do shortcut) if you are feeling like a beer bench is where you would rather spend the rest of your day.

  1. What if I don’t like beer?

You know this the beer run right? Seriously we don’t want to exclude you so certain beer stops will have cider or flavoured beer options, we even have something 0,0% for your designated driver buddies or your mom.

  1. Do you have carb free, gluten free Banting Beer?

Yes, we call it water! It will be available at each Beer Stop, to help the rehydration process, we don’t want you peaking too early. Please note this will be good old government water, not the fancy bottled stuff, we don’t want you going soft.

  1. Ok, where do I get my ticket from?

Once you have registered online, all you need to do is print out your confirmation and bring it with to the beer run. You should aim to be at registration at least and hour before your start time. Here you will receive your run number, beer vouchers for the beer stops and batch start armbands. Then we suggest heading to the bar to grab your favourite brew to start warming up! If you have to ask if it’s too early for a drink. Then you’re an amateur and we can’t be friends.

  1. Can I register on the day?

Unfortunately, if we reach our capacity we won’t allow registrations on the day as we don’t want beer riots when the beer points run out of beer. Check out our event Facebook page for updates on when we are nearing capacity. Always remember the early drinker catches the worm, usually in a shot of Tequila.

  1. Can we buy spectator/festival tickets?

Spectator/festival tickets are free, just bring money for food and beer. The Beer Run accepts cash or Zapper, so download the Zapper app before you come. With Zapper your phone can be your best drinking buddy because it never runs out of money.

  1. What time do we start?

You select a start batch when you enter, this time is based on what you feel is early enough to start drinking (we feel the earlier the better), if you entered as a team, your team captain should have your batch start time.

  1. Some “friends” have dropped out of The Beer Run can we transfer their entries to someone else?

Once you have deleted your so called friends off Facebook, you can log into your my active account and transfer their entry to a new real friend.
